1863 DATED BLACK THERMO CASE W AMBROTYPE

  This Ambrotype of a young lady identified only as "A.C.F.", is seated and wearing a clearly defined crocheted snood with a large tassel off to one side. An indefinable cameo is affixed to the top of her dress at the neckline. The dark colored dress is ornamented with a black collar and matching cloth covered buttons both down the center as you would expect and for ornamentation on the sleeves near the shoulder seam. She wears a sash belt with a metal buckle which is undecernable.

  It sits in a Littlefield, Parsons & Co. pat. 1856/57 black Thermoplastic case dated & initialed with pencil, by the owner, Feb. 28, 1863. It has a decorative brass retainer plate ornamented with flowers and stars. The plate itself measures 2 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches tall. The hinges are tight. It closes and fastens well. As you can see from the photos it has minor chips on the outer edge. There's nothing hidden. You see every good thing and bad that the case has to offer. I think it's priced very reasonably. The image itself is much better and sharper than my poor attempt at photography shows. I made no attempt to clean the glass, I seldom clean relics.

LATE 1850's RED THERMO CASE W AMBROTYPE

  This Ambrotype of a young lady (sad eyes & sausage curls) appears to be a warm weather photo as she has the low cut, off the shoulder bodice and short sleeves. The bodice itself is pleated in a fan design. The cuff of the short sleeve is also pleated in an unusual fashion. She wears a gold chain and cross with no other jewelry showing.

  It sits in a brick red Thermoplastic case. The plate itself measures 2 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches tall. The ornamented brass retainer plate has columns on each side with a floral motif in the corners. The hinges are tight. It closes and fastens well. As you can see from the photos it has it's bumps and bruises but then don't we all. There's nothing hidden. You see every good thing and bad that the case has to offer. I think it's priced very reasonably. The late 1850's would be my guess on this one, it could be early 1860's.

1850s 1/4 PLATE OF A YOUNG LADY

  This Ambrotype of a young lady is actually a little better than my photo of it would suggest. These "things" are murder to photograph. I would date this one mid 1850s, possibly just a little later. It really is a good strong image. Only half a case though. If you find a front they are very cheap and it can easily be attached to this one using library tape. Her dress has a nice medium size pattern, lace gloves and collar. A large bow on the front of her belt and this is your lucky day boys, she's single - no ring! Looks like she's the girl you left behind.
